san francisco. >> it was a historic and emotional meeting at the basilica of st. dorris, pop john paul, ii greeted some of the 900 guests and then approached the nine pews of aids patients and certainly the most moving moment came when 4- year-old brendon o'rourke in his father's arms reached out to hug the holy father. >>> little brendan contracted aids from a blood transfusion at birth. the pope then moved to other aids suffers, most of them gay. it was the first time the leader of the catholic church has met directly with aids suffers. ♪ [ music ] [ applause ] >> from there the pope went alone to pray in the old mission, the oldest building in san francisco. >>> in prepared remarks the pope proclaimed the unconditional and everlastthing love of god for all people, dwelling at lengths on sin and forgiveness. he did not mention homosexuality and only once refered to aids suffers. >> be last, those of you who are sick, those who are suffering from aids and from aids related complex -- >> but it wasn't what the pope said publicly the faithful catholics here will most remember, it

appointed by benedict xvi, and the others were appointed by john paul 7. it will be about who they want to see in that position. they will crumbly be very similar to the ideas. tavis: this is a very big issue, but because this program is viewed nationally and internationally, for that matter, and because the pope is an international icon, this local story has become a national story because of the implications. i had no idea that cardinal mahony, who was in charge of the l.a. archdioceses, that cardinal, who is no longer in that position, but apparently still retains a vote for the next pope, so, ok. i get the part that once a cardinal, you still get a chance to vote for the next pope. i get back. what was stunning to me is that he gets to retain that vote when he is under a cloud of suspicion for payoffs and other stuff, allegedly, when he was in charge of the archdiocese's around the sex scandal issue, and stuff is coming out more and more every day about what he knew and what he did and what they try to hide, etc., etc., and with all respect to that cardinal, he gets to go and cast a

, will it be a pope outside of europe? there hasn't been an italian pope since before john paul ii, who is polish and then we had our german pope with pope benedict. could it be an african pope, latin pope, a younger pope, and also a pope that could lead the church out of these sex abuse scandals. >> what's the possibility of it being a pope with a bit more diversity? >> it's quite likely. it could happen. but it's always been difficult to predict who the next pope will be. and often times the predictions run afoul. they turn out not to be correct. >> okay. so how does the catholic church -- how does the vatican then shake this bad press? and to move forward, to look for the next pope? >> well, i think that the cardinals who are tasked with the selection of the next pope have a big task. and they will be sequestered in the sistine chapel, and they will, according to the rules, pray and try to select the next pope through prayer, politicking is looked down upon. but before they go into the chapel, they hear two sermons about the future of the church and what the next pope should be

rest were chosen by john paul ii. both men shared a determination to reassert a more conservative catholicism. as for the next pope, cardinal theodore mccarrick says the conclave will elect the right person for the job. >> you're not going to go for your buddy or nationalists or someone you think will do you a favor or give you more auxiliaries or something like to. you're voting, you should be voting for a man you think god wants to govern and serve the church at this time. >> the pope is expected to officially step down next week. >>> the obama administration is urging the supreme court to strike down the federal law on same-sex marriage benefits. the white house filed paperwork arguing that the 1996 defense of marriage act or doma is unconstitutional. the law denies same-sex couples legally married under state law a number of important federal benefits like social accurate survivor benefits and family medical leave protections afforded to heterosexual couples. the legal brief does not address the separate challenge to prop eight which will be heard by the supreme court on march

as popular, pope benedict xvi does have something on pope john paul ii, the catholic church experienced a 6% increase in favorability, up from 56% during pope john paul ii's tenure and that's what the survey says. >>> coming up, she beats out her husband in almost every popularity poll. now michelle obama is back on the road and we'll look at what the second term may hold for the first lady. >>> first, the latest from south africa on where the olympic star accused of murder is now a day after being released on bail. you're watching msnbc. i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. >>> more than 100 days after hurricane sand e so

themselves, living among civilians. john: the pauling's show most americans support your position. 83 percent support using jones, 79 percent against american citizens. so i'm sure you want to weigh in here. your comments. >> hi. george mason university. you said drones are justified because the president is subject to congressional authority and has the duty to defend american citizens. ignoring for a moment, do you really think he has been subject to that much congressional authority? >> the framers, the framers of the constitution had just one of our country's independence by war. they knew the threat was that we faced as a small country. they knew we needed an energetic capability to defend ourselves. they wanted a strong commander-in-chief. they created a congress that had power over the

that we can do. steve, is he right or wrong? >> you'll be surprised to know that i think rand paul is wrong. i think this notion that the sequester cuts will be meaningless, look no further than john boehner. john boehner himself has said that this will be a disaster. orrin hatch, republican from utah said this week talking to a local newspaper that he thinks this will be a disaster. i think that even rand paul when it comes to his rhetoric on the sequester is part of a very small minority of even republicans, because i think there is bipartisan agreement that this is a real problem, that the american mainstream regular folks are going to feel a real pinch, and it's going to do harm to the economy, the military and public needs. i think rand paul is in the minority on this one. >> of course, the end of march is certainly going to do something as well. they're going to have to figure out what to do with the budget there. in fact, i want to put it to both of you. what happens when we're approaching another deadline at the end of march and this time to avoid a government shutdown? >> wel

say rand paul is spot-on. john nichols, is the president overreacting? >> he absolutely is not overreacting. the sequester is austerity. it is -- it's not slowing the rate of growth. our population is growing. our needs are growing. if you slow down the amount of spending you've got at a time when you have growth and population, you are making severe cuts. and the sequester is really the first installment on an austerity agenda that poses huge threats according to government and private sector analyses to our abolishmeemployment rate an potential for growth. the president is not lying nor is he being historionic or overboard. >> i don't know what the president strategy is, but it looks to me like there is not one. they're saying different things and reacting on different points and none of them make sense. when you talk about sequestration or across the board cuts, we're talking about things that impact the lives of real people. they want to see small government. well, small government doesn't work when you have a large population. whether it's food inspectors or health care pr
